And the Rest of Fox News
CNN and MSNBC received their fair share of criticism, but let's not kid ourselves: Stewart's biggest cable target was Fox News, for its habit of distorting news for its own political purposes. Going after everything from the rotating crop of airheads on Fox & Friends to Sean Hannity's smug, bullying commentaries, Stewart encapsulated his angry campaign against the network by dubbing the channel "Bullshit Mountain" in 2012. And, no, he won't miss keeping tabs on Fox once he retires. "Let's say that it's a nuclear winter, and I have been wandering, and there appears to be a flickering light through what appears to be a radioactive cloud and I think that light might be a food source that could help my family," Stewart told the Guardian this spring about his post-Daily Show life. "I might glance at it for a moment until I realize, 'That's Fox News,' and then I shut it off."
